    Personnel was really friendly and helpful. There is a beautiful rooftop chill out area. Interior and exterior design is awesome with attention to detail. Rooms and bathrooms were very clean. Filtered water (which tastes great) for free.

    Street noises: We had one of the rooms towards the street. Due to cobblestone pavement (almost everywhere in the city) it gets quite noisy when cars or trucks pass by. Shower: 1 of 4 showers was cold.

    Couldn’t rate this higher - the staff were the friendliest we met and couldn’t have done more to help us. The roof terrace looking up to the volcano was beautiful, free tea and coffee and just a general lovely vibe! Couldn’t recommend higher

    Beautiful hostel, clean spacios rooms, friendly stuff, amazing view from terrace.

    No kitchen. Too much noise from the street. I was waking up from the noise early in the morning

    After seven months of backpacking, this is the most wonderful hostel we've ever stayed in. Everyone works so hard to make you feel welcome and at home. It is quiet, peaceful, and clean - a real sanctuary. My favorite part was drinking delicious coffee on the roof in the mornings.
